Thanks to everyone who wrote in about Nokia 3650 pricing - all six of you. The 3650 is available -sim free - now in Finland for €550, a whopping £376.11 at today's currency rate.

That sounds like very early adopter price to us. UK retailers expect sim-free prices to kick off in at around £320 inc. VAT (approx €469) That's sounds more like the US $450-$500 being quoted in Asia.

But as volumes ramp up, prices should come down a little in Europe. UK retailer mPhone is offering a sim free Nokia 3650 on pre-order at £279.65 inc. VAT (approx €409). But it is quoting an estimated delivery date of May.

As the price quoted is very close to what we understhand Nokia's wholesale price to be, it is difficult to see the sims-free version falling much further, Unless, of course, the 3650 is an absolute turkey and punters stay away in droves.

And with a contract? Argos, of all places, is touting the 3650 with a T-Mobile Pay as You Go in its catalogue for £299.95. (not £229 as we said earlier) It's available from March 15. ®
